97
98 == General Notes ==
99
100 {{warning}}
101 If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property //xwiki.store.migration.databases=all// to your //xwiki.cfg// file or explicitly name all databases to be migrated as in //xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...//.
102 {{/warning}}
103
104 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from the improvements listed above.
105
106 {{warning}}
107 Always make sure you compare your //xwiki.cfg// file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note you should add //xwiki.store.migration=1// so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
108 {{/warning}}
109
110 == Notes specific to XWiki Enterprise 2.6 ==
111
112 * The Main.RecentChages page was removed and replaced by Main.Activity
113 * The configuration option controlling the experimental CSRF protection mechanism introduced in 2.5 was changed from ##core.csrf.enabled## to ##csrf.enabled##. If you are using CSRF protection, make sure to re-enable it by setting ##csrf.enabled = true## in ##xwiki.properties##.
114 * The configuration option to define macro categories was changed from ##rendering.macroCategories## to ##rendering.transformation.macro.categories##. If you're using this option make sure you modify its name in ##xwiki.properties##.
